Keys to Self-esteem
After breaking up with someone we love, we tend to blame ourselves. Since meeting and spending hours with my new friend, I am assured it was not entirely my fault. I felt compelled to pass some of my comfort on to others who might need to regain some Self-esteem. I am listing, below, some steps that you may find of value:
Dare to take a risk again - just remember to take SAFE risks.
Stop the negative Self-image. Building Self-esteem is a process, not developed overnight.
Stop trying to fool your real SELF - you can't do it.
Stop putting yourself down.
Stop comparing yourself to others.
Get involved in activities you love.
Be true to YOURSELF.
Accept praise and say "thank you" - believe you deserve it.
Say "I am a valuable and lovable person and I deserve the best in my life" - say it 20 times a day to yourself.
Associate with supportive and positive people.
Make a list of your past successes.
List your positive qualities and read them often.
Start giving more of yourself to those around you.
Respect yourself first.
Most importantly, when you are alone, appreciate the person you are with - YOURSELF.
